The Swiss Footballer of the Year was a yearly award given to the top footballer based in Switzerland.

From the 1972-73 season until the 1997-98 season, the award was chosen by the now defunct Swiss newspaper 'Sport'. Since the original award could only be won by a Swiss national, there was also a Foreigner of the Year award from 1973-74 until 1997-98.
